Blueberry-Cream Cheese Dumplings


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup cream cheese (4 ounces)
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • Fresh fruit such as apricots, cherries, plums, strawberries, or blueberries


  1. Cream together butter, cream cheese, and egg.
  2. Slowly add the flour and milk.
  3. Set the dough out on a floured surface, and break off pieces (about 1 tablespoon size) of dough.
  4. Flatten into a circle, then place fruit on top and wrap the dough around the fruit, sealing the edges well. For blueberries, use about 12 blueberries per dumpling.
  5. Cook in boiling water for 5-8 minutes, until the dumplings float to the surface (make sure the dough is not stuck to the bottom of the pan.
  6. Serve while hot, topped with desired toppings: whipped cream, butter with sugar, and/or vanilla ice cream.
  7. May be re-heated later in the microwave (just be sure to poke holes in them with a fork).
